Like all Amontillados, Tio Diego began life as a Fino. The grapes came from the single vineyard 'Inocente' in the famous Pago Macharnudo, and the must was fermented in oak butts. The wine then aged for over 8 years under a veil of flor yeasts in the Inocente solera before being transferred to the Tio Diego solera to continue ageing for at least another 8 years in the absence of flor and taking on a complex range of oxidative notes in addition to those of the flor.
Coulour: amber coloured wine.
Nose: complex on the nose with distinct hazelnut aromas.
Palate: dry, full, elegant and well balanced.
